Pune, August 5: Presently, the works of Pune Metro Rail (Pune Metro Rail) in Pune city have gained momentum. Even when the metro rail work is going on in the city, allegations are being raised about this work. The Metro Rail Department of Pune has directly removed DP Road. The Aam Aadmi Party has made a sensational allegation that the commissioner, construction department, property management, local BJP councilor and MLA have no knowledge of the matter.
What is the matter?
These allegations have been made by Shankar Thorat of Aam Aadmi Party. He claims that he has been in correspondence with the Municipal Corporation, Metro and Agriculture College since June in this matter. This road has been built near the sugar complex in Shivajinagar Wakdevadi. This road is proposed parallel to the railway line from Wakdewadi to Khadki and from there to the Irrigation Department. Due to this road metro commuters, rail passengers and local traffic will pass through this parallel road instead of using the old highway.
Thorat has alleged that the Metro Rail Corporation has directly encroached on this road and occupied this place by laying a track here. Because of this road, this road had to be used as a service road for railways and metro. Now that this road is closed, it will affect the traffic in future and create dilemma. We have already given full information to Gadgil, Executive Director, Metro Railway in this regard.
Gadgil has been advocating for several days, so AAP’s Shankar Thorat, Shivaji Nagar president Satish Yadav and AAP district president Mukund Kirdat met Commissioner Vikram Kumar and gave a statement to take immediate steps in this regard.
The most shocking aspect of this is that when the property department needed to occupy this place, the administration and metro officer Gadgil, metro site depot in-charge Brijesh Bhattacharya also remained silent. But the Aam Aadmi Party will protest on the streets if needed. Thorat alleged that the frequent disappearance of bridges, missing underpasses and now missing DP Road are signs of disorderly governance in the smart city.
